Life is a marathon—or a steeplechase for some people
Tokyo Electron (TEL) in Hsinchu, Taiwan, a local subsidiary of the leading Japanese manufacturer of semiconductor and flat panel production equipment, is celebrating its 20th year by launching a charity marathon event in June as part of its commitment to the corporate social responsibility (CSR) principles.
They say life is a marathon, but it can be a steeplechase for some people. For children with disabilities, for instance, the course of life never runs smooth. They may have to go through daily rehabilitation routines to attain physical growth, or they may need special equipment and aids to communicate and socialize with others and discover the beauty and wonders of this world. It is our ardent wish to enable these children to take the first step toward realizing their dreams.
It was in this spirit that the management team of TEL in Hsinchu, Taiwan visited the National Nantou Special School and learned about the equipment and aids their students need, including voice-recording smart pens and eye-tracking control devices. The executives also interacted with children by playing a game with them. The game is not only enjoyable but also useful in encouraging them to move their body and augment their rehabilitation. The children had a fun time playing with characters wearing sumo wrestler and clown costumes.
The Run for Charity event held in June this year drew over 80 employee runners from TEL in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The company pledged to make a cash donation proportionate to the aggregate distance covered by the runners, and the amount of donation came to NT$536,500. The entire amount will be donated to the National Nantou Special School to buy special equipment and aids for children with disabilities to upgrade their studying environment. Under the Run for Love slogan, the company will keep cooperating with citizens to support the children with disabilities.
